Content Curation is a term that describes the act of finding, grouping, organizing or sharing the best and most relevant content on a specific issue.
It is such a powerful idea because curation does NOT focus on adding more content/noise to the chaotic information overload of social media, and instead focuses on helping any one of us to make sense of this information by bringing together what is most important.
